Threadbear

We made it home from Threadbear last night. It is usually an hour and 15 minute drive but coming home it turned into 2 hours. The roads were awful and we drove between 20 to 30mph for a good portion of the trip. Thankfully we made it, a lot of cars were in ditches.

I didn't really go to Threadbear for any specific purpose. I get emails talking about all the new stuff that they are getting and just wanted to check it out. I cannot believe how much they have grown just in the couple of months that we have been going there. It's unbelieveable. I did take a sampling of Knitterella greeting cards with me and it sounded like they will start carrying them. I have no vested interest in the cards, just friends with Knitterella, but I felt like they would be a good fit for the store.

I found some Cascade 220 superwash for a baby hat that I wanted to make and my DH picked up another ball of Rowan Denim for a sweater he is making. I got a pair of Addi Turbo circulars in size 7. I was happy with that and ready to go when...

Out of nowhere I became the owner of a Joy spinning wheel. I have to say it was kind of a shock. It's really my DHs fault. He is such a bad influence on me.

I do love it (thanks for the recommendation Tracy) and I already spun some last night, now I just have to figure out how to ply it.

OOOH! I lurve my Joy! If you have a regular lazy-kate I do recommend using that or fashioning one with some spare knitting needles and shoebox or something like it.

The way the bobbins are upright on the joy seem to make it hard to ply and they don't flow nicely like they do on a regular style lazy-kate.

Waaahayyy! You got one, fantastic. I love that it's so portable and I can sit on the sofa whilst everyone's watching tv and spin without getting in the way. I'm really pleased for you, good old dh!
